After last year's triumph, Chelmsford Theatre Workshop are back with another Discworld production! Director Lynne Foster says, "I have loved to read Terry Pratchett since his first books were published – and over 20 years ago , Wyrd Sisters was one of the first plays I appeared in... After a break of a few years CTW once again put on a Terry Pratchett last year – a production of Wyrd Sisters – significantly just after Terry passed away. So – when I was thinking what to submit for 2015/6 season, I re-read Mort – and loved it – it has everything, magic, feisty young protagonists, and best of all – DEATH! I think Pratchett's plays are quite difficult to translate to the theatre, but in my opinion, Mort is the most successful. I spoke to the team who put on Wyrd Sisters who agreed to work with me on this – and the rest – as they say – is history. The whole team is looking forward to producing a fast paced, entertaining wonderful production in March."

The Unseen Theatre gang bring on a new era of Discworld adaptations with The Wee Free Men, adapted and directed by Pamela Munt! "In the first of a series of Discworld novels for young adults, we meet the young witch-to-be Tiffany Aching – a girl who reads the dictionary for fun – because no-one ever told her not to. With a trusty frying pan as her weapon, her grandmother's magic book (well actually its called 'Diseases of the Sheep') and the Wee Free Men by her side, Tiffany ventures into the realm of faerie land to rescue her very sticky, and not particularly likeable, baby brother. But, of course, all is not what it seems..."
